What is a Try Dive About?
This is the ideal opportunity see what SCUBA is all about. Almost everyone who tries it is thrilled by the novel sensation of floating weightless and breathing effortlessly underwater.

The session lasts around an hour. After some brief but vital safety instruction, you’ll be shown how the equipment works and then given around half an hour using SCUBA equipment in the pool under qualified supervision. If you get on well, you can try some of the real training exercises too.

Are There Any Restrictions?
The only requirements are that you have no known significant medical problems (especially heart conditions, serious ear or sinus problems, lung damage, asthma, fits or epilepsy). You will also have to sign a declaration to this effect.

Can I Give Someone a Try Dive as a Present?
Try Dives make ideal gifts for birthdays, Christmas, thank-you’s, congratulations and so on.
